I put the Carada CCW up next to a Stewart Studiotek 130 screen today - well the salesman held if for me, and stared a lot. The colors were close enough that neither of us could tell any color balance differences for a few types of material. The only difference was the CCW wasn't as bright.
ST130 - I couldn't see any sparkles until I was 4-5 feet from it. Awesome screen, I can see why its the industry reference.
That said, the CCW looked good next to it except for the gain (which I'd expect). So I think that recommends the CCW, expecially for the price! They didn't have ST100 on display.
I also put my sample of the Screen Innovations Pure White 1.3 up against the ST130. The ST130 was actually a little brighter, and it was obvious the Pure White had a bluish cast to the color. It wasn't as color neutral as ST130 or CCW, and I didn't like the coolness of its image as much. As for smoothness and uniformity, brightness and low sparkle, the Pure White 1.3 gain still looked very good in that regard.
